I've literally spent hours today and yesterday reading pages which maybe..just maybe added up to double digits !! All for a 2000 essay on Self and Other that i'm supposed to hand in the middle of this month-I feel screwed already *sigh* If anyone out there knows something about Hegel, Self and Other, Frantz Fanon, Rene Menil and Stuart Hall- give me a shout would ya ! Help a poor soul out :( Until then, I'll be doing more reading tonight and maybe a bit of writing too if I can figure out wtf to say ugh !!
You are amoral, are you not? You are feeding off the violence and the despair of the drug trade. You're stealing from those who themselves are stealing the lifeblood from our city. You are a parasite who leeches off--
Just like you, man.
--the culture of drugs... Excuse me, what?
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game, though, right?
I never thought I'd enjoy posting gifs, images etc but I've found they do the job when you don't feel like talking much hehe. It's going to be a long but *fingers-crossed* productive day for me and I hope you guys all get the most out of your Saturday no matter what it is you're doing !! Have a great day y'all (I love that contraction!!) :)
Philosophy has been kicking my ass for the past two weeks ! Everything was going fine until the lecture & seminar on Rene Menil, Hegel and Frantz Fanon. As soon as Hegel's Master & Slave dialectic was explained I felt myself turn contrary. I went from interested to thinking this was just about the dumbest pile of horse manure I've had to make sense of over the past 20 years and I've had to make sense of a lot of dumb shit ! From that class onwards I've had this wall come up and a knee-jerk reaction of blah blah blah yammer yammer yammer to the stuff I've had to read. Not good !!! This week it's Edward Said's Orientalism - his point, blah, yammer, lead up to his second point by which time I've forgotten the first - and that's the least of my worries. Assignment questions are out for all my classes and I have till November 18. Tonight it's all about changing my outlook or I'm screwed. Yikes !!
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: I got to ask you. If every time Snotboogie would grab the money and run away, why'd you even let him in the game?
Snot Boogie's Friend: What?
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: If Snotboogie always stole the money, why'd you let him play?
Snot Boogie's Friend: Got to. It's America, man.
(This after one of their gang killed Snot Boogie)
